Layout of the Week #44- Creating a Flip Page for Extra Photos

     Sometimes when I sit down to scrap photos, I try to fit several on the page, but I'm not always able to. Today we are going to create a flip page on our layout to allow extra room for photos.

Here's the layout we'll be creating.
The part with the photos flips up and has room underneath to add more pictures.

To make it, you'll need:
three pieces of coordinating pattern paper- one 12"x12" piece and two 8 1/2" x 11" pieces
letter stickers for the title
journaling card (I used two index cards)
embellishments to go with your theme
 paper trimmer
Take your first 8 1/2"x11" piece of paper (vertically) and fold the top two inches down which will make a two inch flap. Fill the rest of the paper with photos.
Place adhesive on the flap and center the smaller page onto the larger page.

Then take your second 8 1/2" x 11" paper and trim two inches off the end. Adhere it directly behind the top mat. This will act as a mat for more photos and will cover up the flap from the top page.
It should look like this.

Trim your photos to make them fit.

Add your title to the lower right corner of the flip-up mat.
I also used a ticket to act as a tab for flipping the page up. If you don't have a ticket, cut a small rectangle of paper and it will work.

To finish it off, add embellishments to the top right corner and the bottom left corner of the layout.

Here is what it looks like with the page flipped up. I attached my journaling cards to the backside of the flip up. If you have more photos, you could place them there as well.
I hope this encourages you to sit down with a bunch of photos and get them scrapped!
Thanks for stopping by God bless.
The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
to see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
Psalm 14:2
